How is diarrhoea managed?
If your baby has diarrhoea, always follow the advice of your healthcare professional.
Try to feed fluid as often as your baby will take it. As well as fluid, your baby’s body needs electrolytes to function properly, so a solution containing electrolytes should be used to help to rehydrate even more effectively.
If your baby has constant or persistent diarrhoea, make sure you talk to your doctor. It’s important to rule out any underlying medical causes of chronic diarrhoea. Diarrhoea, constipation and/or vomiting may also be symptoms of a food allergy.
